Cameron Slater has a premium monthly newsletter out. Apparently it’s … not good.
So why pay $35 a month for a collection of hackneyed rightwing thinkpieces? You could spend about that much – or less! on something like:
A Christmas piglet – $40
Oxfam will provide a family in Papua New Guinea with a piglet to raise for breeding and sale, providing their community with a good income.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Steam – $23.99
After 224 hours of gameplay I’m still going back for more. For less than an additional month’s subscription to INCITE – you could get the Legendary Edition for $47.99. Or if postapocalyptic black humour is more your thing, the Fallout 3: Game of the Year edition is only $23.99 itself.
